Facebook, Instagram experiencing outages

Facebook and Instagram applications are shown on the screen of an iPhone in Zagreb Croatia

It was unclear when the issue might be resolved.

Even rapper Soulja Boy joined the conversation tweeting, "Wtf is wrong with Instagram s- not working oh well time to make my own app".

The last time Facebook went down was November 20 - and it took Instagram with it then as well.

What they're not saying is that some people are having trouble accessing Facebook at all, let alone the family of apps.

Third-party outage tracker Down Detector said the worst hotspots were in California and NY in the U.S., and in the UK.

Estimates suggest the issue began around 16:00 GMT on Wednesday.

In response to the issues, a number of Facebook Messenger users have taken to Twitter to express their disappointment at the problem.

As far as we're aware, Google is back to normal by now, and Facebook is still working to right its servers and connectivity.

Many of Facebook's collected 2.32 billion monthly active users were frustrated today by outages across its apps.

Facebook seems to be down in various forms particularly for those who are trying to log in on desktop.

According to Down Detector, a website that tracks online service interruptions, most of the outage was in Europe and on America's East and West coasts.

Buenos Aires-based designer Rebecca Brooker told the BBC the interruption was having a significant impact on their work. "We are investigating the issue and working on a resolution".

"I'm trying to communicate with my team in NY".

Facebook, on Twitter, last gave an update about ongoing outages on its platforms on it's platforms on Wednesday afternoon. "I have s-t to do", another user tweeted.

"Account Temporarily Unavailable", was a message that some Facebook users from across the globe discovered on checking their pages.

The platforms weren't down for everyone, but many people were unable to access their profiles, with glitches in how the sites worked. Individual users have been able to post sporadically throughout the outage.
